Additional Info About Our Church

Located on the corner of Church and New Streets, New Street United Methodist Church has served the community of Shepherdstown, West Virginia, for well over 150 years. Built in 1854, the brick sanctuary replaced the original log church that was destroyed by fire earlier that year.

As a witness to the Civil War, the building most likely served as a hospital after the Battle of Antietam in 1862, for records show that most public buildings and homes in the town sheltered Wounded Confederate soldiers after Robert E. Lee's troops retreated back across the Potomac River into Virginia.

At the end of the war, the Methodist Episcopal Church in Shepherdstown separated, and New Street continued to serve the congregation of the northern faction, while the southern supporters constructed a new building on German Street (now the War Memorial Building).

Reuniting in the 1940's, the congregations selected New Street as their home, and following extensive remodeling/construction, this building has continued to house the Methodist congregation and serve as an important part of the Shepherdstown community.


We celebrate God's grace with all in a caring Christ-centered community.


To become a growing, warm, and nurturing church that provides sanctuary for the worship of God and service of Christ to others, through the power of the Holy Spirit.


To be transformed into passionate followers of Christ, and to spread the Gospel to make and equip new disciples.
